For this day trip we headed to Edale in the Dark Peaks which was about a 2 hour drive away.
The day was sunny and warm. A nice change to the trip of last week. We arrived in Edale at about 11am.
From Edale we started out just behind the Nag's Head and walked up Kinder Scout alongside Grinds Brook.
Upon reaching the top we trudged through the deep but unique peat mounds whilst heading over Crowden Head to the un-named fall just north, after which we headed due west through quite a deep bog to get back onto the Pennine Way and see Kinder Downfall.
We had an early-ish start at quarter to 6 to ensure we got to the Coniston Hall campsite by the 9pm deadline. We numbered 10.
The trip up indicated toward the weather we would be having for the entire weekend. Spots of sun, then cloud, then raid then low cloud and just a mixture of any of those.
Arriving slightly past 9pm, we set up our tents in a waterlogged field. Once done Myself and 2 others headed up Old Man of Coniston for a night walk, whilst the rest stayed at the campsite, socialised then went to bed.
Sixteen people went to the Peak District for this day trip. We headed to Longnor where we would walk up Chrome and Parkhouse hills.
We were met with heavy traffic on the way up, but that was to be expected for a bank holiday weekend. The sing-a-long in the bus made the queues bearable for most.
The day was filled with sunshine and clouds with members taking every opportunity to get some snapshots for our upcoming photo competition.
During the walk and at our lunch break we had an opportunity to play some frisbee which was quite strenuous given the high winds.
We left the Guild at the normal time on Friday, arrived at a bunkhouse that was quite luxurious as Wayfarer accommodations go. Heating that was too hot, bunk beds with pillows, wi-fi and a TV... it felt quite disconcerting and the consensus was that we should stick to camping barns.
Saturday morning we left to Dollgelau and split into 2 groups. One would go around Cadair Idris clockwise from the south car park and the other would go anti-clockwise with an extension, at a faster pace.
The Wayfarers had previously intended to run this trip in August of this year, but we have since had to reschedule it to Easter 2014 due to lack of interest.
The Isle of Skye is the largest and most northerly large island in the Inner Hebrides of Scotland. The island's peninsulas radiate from a mountainous centre dominated by the Cuillins, the rocky slopes of which provide some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in the country.
As some of you may be aware the Guild of Students has changed the rules of when societies should have their Annual General Meetings (AGMs). Every society now has to have its AGM in march.
As a result The Wayfarers will be holding its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on the 7th of March. It is important that as many of you attend as possible and, more imprtantly, that people stand for committee positions. Unfortunately, if we do not have an all student committee elected in March then Wayfarers as a student society will cease to exist.
